Recently, I've been feeling some MAJOR overwhelm with everything going on in my life, but I couldn't even pinpoint what was happening. Yes, there's been a lot of change (new job, new city, new apartment), but the level of emotion I was feeling felt a bit dramatic for just that.
Normally, I bottle these things up inside and think, "I'll just deal with it, power through, it will be fine." I don't want to be a burden to anyone else because, really, what can they do? But today I reached out to two friends and just shared. 1) that made me feel better in and of itself and 2) talking through it helped me realize WHY I am feeling so emotional right now.
I've discovered that I really struggle living in the present moment and trusting that I'm going to be okay. Instead, I live in my head and constantly run through the potential bad scenarios or second guess my decisions. We can't live our lives like that - caught up in our heads. So my focus now is on being present, as best I can.
